The new issue of Spin-Off has finally arrived- and my new pattern is on the cover! An article on how I prepared the dyed locks of wool for worsted spinning is also included. Spinning the handpainted Polwarth locks from Rovings and a silk/Merino blend dyed in a beautiful golden color by Abstract Fibers was a treat indeed!
I found an interesting BBC 4 Radio story about the future of handknitting in the schools and communities of Fair Isle. Interesting interviews with knitters- Check it out! http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00t5vkh/Open_Country_Fair_Isle_Knitting/
